Is building a new home in Tauranga or the BOP the way to go? As a Real Estate Agent in such a growth area as Bay of Plenty I often have conversations on whether to build or buy existing home in this current market. Clearly the answer is highly based on the personal situation but in a high percentage of cases I would be in favour of building new as a smarter move.

However, you do need to pick the right Tauranga building company as your partner, after all it’s a big investment and you’ll be in contact with them closely for quite some time – you need to have full trust in them. Once you have that right then it’s fun creating your home!

Building in the current market has real benefits; most importantly you need to have less deposit to build a new home. You can use Kiwisaver not mention the fact the it’s a brand-new asset, maintenance free, warmer and with a well know building company a 10 year warranty that’s piece of mind for your biggest investment – and you can design it around your lifestyle requirements.

It’s something to seriously when thinking about property whether it’s your first home, adding to your portfolio, trading up of that final downsize to investigate before making any purchasing decisions.

If you are building a new home, it can have the things that make your home a real home. You have the ability to add personal features. Perhaps it’s that gourmet kitchen that you always wanted or a mancave for the extra toys many of us collect.

Building a new home need not be expensive

I currently have new build packages listed from $659,000.00 or packages that start from $650,000.00 for a total design and build option in locations in the Bay that continue to provide strong growth, new schools, shopping centres with easy access in the CBD, all signs that new builds in that area will continue to hold their value.

For more information about building in the Bay of Plenty as an option for you and your family, please contact Build7 BOP.
